There are no stones that reach for those who are obstacles.
ON one occasion Jesus of Nazareth said: But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a millstone hung around his neck, and to drown in the depths of the sea. sea. At that time, he was teaching his disciples about the importance of having a correct pedagogy and mastery over the people who are under his tutelage. What they did not know, nor did they understand, was the strength and power that their actions, deeds and sayings would have for eternity. The book of the Acts of the Apostles narrates the good and bad testimony of some of these disciples of Christ. I am not saying that they gave an incorrect account of their lives, I am saying that some of their actions have confronted me when I saw how badly I am doing, following their bad experiences.
“DO NOT DESTROY THE WORK OF GOD BECAUSE OF FOOD. ALL FOOD IS PURE; THE BAD THING IS TO TRIP OTHERS BY WHAT ONE EATS.”
Let us pray together: Eternal God, I praise and exalt you in my life. Now, I have to rise to the occasion as Christ did. Help me to teach well and act appropriately in front of others and thus evangelise both actively and passively.
For some cultures, consuming pork is prohibited. This is a health issue that God Himself ordained in the Old Testament. When Christ reveals heavenly plans to us through his Gospel, he tells us that all food is blessed because God Himself sanctified it. The Apostle Peter went to visit the church that was in Galatia, and was eating with them, among other things, pork. When James and other Jews from Jerusalem went to visit them, Peter had a strange behaviour, he distanced himself from the Galatian brothers, stopped eating pork and chose to be a Judaiser again and for this fact, Paul strongly rebuked him about the bad example that he was giving, because with his actions, he confused people and did not give a clear message about the freedom that we have in Christ Jesus.
"YOU BETTER NOT EAT MEAT OR DRINK WINE, OR DO ANYTHING THAT MAKES YOUR BROTHER FALL."
Let us pray together: Jesus Christ, I do not want to have a rock tied around my neck because I am an obstacle to someone. Strengthen my soul, spirit and body to be an example of a human being.
What Paul did not know was that Jesus Christ taught Peter himself: Woe to the world because of stumbling blocks, because it is necessary that stumbling blocks come, but woe to that man through whom the stumbling block comes! Therefore, if your hand or your foot causes you to fall, cut it off and throw it away from you; It is better for you to enter life lame or maimed, than having two hands or two feet to be thrown into eternal fire. And if your eye causes you to fall, pluck it out and throw it away from you; It is better for you to enter life with only one eye, than having two eyes to be thrown into hell fire. We must not give a single obstacle to any person, whether he is a convert and much more if he is a non-believer in Christ. For my part, I have to confess how hard it is for me to maintain that good testimony and not be an obstacle for people. Therefore, if my writings or my words have been an obstacle for anyone, I publicly apologise. Much more, if my actions have participated as a stumbling block, I ask forgiveness first of all to God but also to all those who were an obstacle in their lives.
